Sherlock’s Louise Brealey Rebuffs Steven Moffat’s Controversial Comments on Molly Hooper

This is what I think. As a huge Sherlolly fan, I obviously have a lot of opinions.
I think part of the reason Euros made this one of Sherlock’s challenges was that she wanted to see what Sherlock would do to keep his friend safe and see what Molly’s emotional reaction to it would do to Sherlock. I think Sherlock did open up and realize he did have feelings for Molly after it, but I disagree with Moffat when he said that she just got over it. I’m sure Sherlock went and talked to her after the incident and whether she forgave him or not right away I don’t know, but I think she would eventually if he was truly sorry and opened up with his feelings towards her. She came to Baker Street in the end smiling so I’m assuming it ended well.

SPOILER WARNING FOR “THE FINAL PROBLEM”

Molly Hooper’s many fans were left heartbroken by an emotional scene in Sunday’s Sherlock‘s season finale “The Final Problem”. As part of Eurus’ twisted games, she makes Sherlock force Molly to admit her love for him or else she will kill her (it turns out to be a bluff). The perky pathologist is clearly left devastated by the admission, but we didn’t get a scene examining the fallout of that moment.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, writer Steven Moffat explained that he didn’t think such a scene was needed as it was clear that she would get over it:

“She gets over it! Surely at a certain point you have to figure out that after Sherlock escapes tells her, ‘I’m really sorry about that, it was a code, I thought your flat was about to blow up.’ And she says, ‘Oh…

Sherlock Series Four Planned Start Date Revealed

At last! The planned start date for the next series of Sherlock has been revealed…

Paula Kerger, the president of PBS, the American broadcaster of Sherlock, has announced that: “We do have the next Sherlock announced, that is coming up about a year from now.”

Some fans may groan at the news we have to wait another year but at least it will only be 12 more months after we’ve just had the one-off special ‘The Abominable Bride.’ This should also not come as a surprise as series two and three both aired in January as well.

Kerger also reiterated the issues with making Sherlock. “As you know, Benedict has gotten to be somewhat popular since we began our work with him and he very much wants to continue with Sherlock. As you know, they are produced almost like films, and we’re hoping the next one will…

2015 Wrap-Up and Hello 2016!

happy new year new year new years eve new years home alone 2

Happy New Year everyone!

I’m sorry I’ve been basically in the dark for the past month or so. Finals then Christmas and everything else. You know what it’s like.

Anyway, I’ve been seeing all these posts about wrapping up 2015 and what to expect for 2016 and thought I would give it a go. This year has been such a blur and I honestly don’t remember that much, especially at the beginning of the year.

Here are the most important blog-related highlights of my year and what I’m looking forward to in the new year.

Highlights

  • First off, I started this blog (check out my first real post (not a reblog) here! It’s pretty lame, not going to lie.)
  • I started writing for Sherlock’s Home almost exactly a year ago. Check out my first post on their site here!
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child announcements
  • The Sherlock Special (airs tomorrow!) and anxiously waiting for Season 4
  • I opened my Etsy shop! Click the button on the sidebar to visit.
  • Found out who “A” is and 5 Years Forward starts January 12th!
  • Mockingjay Part 2 was amazing and I’m sure Star Wars VII was too (but I haven’t seen it yet 😦 )
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • Dr. Strange started filming
  • Jurassic World
  • I discovered book tags and blogging awards and hopefully I start posting more and get more acquainted with the blogging world.

Sadly, there’s also a list of things I didn’t get to do in 2015 (even though it’s a short list)

Disappointments

  • Didn’t finish all the books on my list (including the Hunger Games series)
  • Didn’t start any new shows (I know… what have I been doing all year?)

I don’t really have any bookish updates or things I’m looking forward to. I still have to finish the list I posted about here. Well, I think I’m going to either start watching The Man In The High Castle or read The Martian. Happy New Year everyone!

Why I Didn’t Write a Review of Mockingjay – Part 2

image

Hi everyone,

I don’t do a lot of movie reviews, but I try to write about every movie I see in theaters. And, of course, I saw Mockingjay – Part 2 in theaters the week it came out. I had been waiting for this since last Thanksgiving, especially since I didn’t know what happened.

That’s why I don’t think I should do a review on it. I didn’t read the book. How can I give an accurate review without a comparison to the book?

However, I will just briefly comment on what I thought of it and what I liked and didn’t like. Jennifer Lawrence was awesome as usual. I thought the movie was pretty epic and I wasn’t disappointed with the climax of the series. I thought it could be a major let down, but it wasn’t. I think it would have been better if I didn’t know who lived and who died. I pretty much had the ending completely spoiled for me. Although, I did think they didn’t accurately portray the characters’ emotions and/or didn’t show enough emotion.

Quick rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Just thought I would comment a bit. Until next time!

Think my choice to not review Mockingjay was justified or not? Comment below!

My Newest Etsy Listing!

Fall Time Cozy Book Tag!

Hi everyone,

Instead of my usual monthly wrap-up, I’m going to do the Fall Time Cozy Book Tag instead! (Basically I’m too busy to write two posts. End of semester struggles.)

Thank you AnotherDeadLawStudent for tagging me! I love Fall and I’m actually really sad that it’s over 😦 . Oh well, we’ll get Spring soon enough.

Crunching Leaves

The world is full of color. Choose a book that has reds, oranges and yellows on the cover.

This is the only one I could think of off the top of my head. I personally hate this book (I had to read it for school).

Cozy Sweater

It’s finally cold enough to don warm cozy clothing. What book gives you the warm fuzzies?

Any Roald Dahl book. I love them so much and I will read them over and over when I’m really stressed out or tired. My favorite is Matilda, but I love The BFG and Danny the Champion of the World too.

Fall Storm

The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose your favorite book OR genre that you like to read on a stormy day.

Any mystery, but preferably Sherlock Holmes stories. As most of you know already, I have a serious obsession for the Sherlock Holmes stories and the new show Sherlock.

Cool Crisp Air

What’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?

Probably Hermione. Really any Harry Potter character because I would LOVE to have a wand and magic and Hogwarts and everything else!

Hot Apple Cider

What under hyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?

Artemis Fowl, of course. The series deserves it. Most people have never even heard of it and it’s so sad because that’s my favorite book series ever.

Coat, Scarves and Mittens

The weather has turned cold and it’s time to cover up. What’s the most embarrassing book cover you own that you like to keep hidden in public?

Fanfiction. That’s not really a book cover and I’m not going to tell you what kind of fanfiction, but yes I have read some.

Pumpkin Spice

What’s your favorite fall time comfort food/foods?

Pumpkin bread/muffins and apple crisp. If you’ve never had apple crisp/never heard of it, seriously, look it up. It’s at least ten times better than apple pie.

And now for tagging. I personally hate tagging people, so if you like this tag go for it! Just remember to mention that my blog was the one you got it from and link to it!

Thanks! Until next time!

Movie Review – The Intern

movie reviews header

Hi everyone,

I know I don’t do very many of these, but that’s because I don’t go to the movies a lot. I just recently went to “The Intern”, my first movie in months. Here’s the summary from IMDb:

“70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker has discovered that retirement isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin.”

First of all, I want to address the general criticism that the movie has received. A lot of people said it was cliche and predictable. And I agree with that to an extent. It was somewhat predictable and cliche, but I though it was very heartwarming and cheery. I think it was written and made to be a feel-good and happy movie, and it achieved just that.

I didn’t think it was as cliche as everyone made it out to be. The plot may have been predictable by the very end but I thought the senior intern idea was new. I’ve never heard of that being done before. Also, I was really glad that Matt and Jules didn’t get a divorce. I was sure they were going to. In that sense, it wasn’t predictable at all.

I also thought it was very funny. Especially the scene where they break into the mom’s house to delete an email. OMG I was crying it was hilarious!

I also personally love Anne Hathaway, so that was my main reason for seeing it. I don’t normally see these types of movies.

Rating: 3.5 stars

Overall, I enjoyed the movie. But like I said, it’s not my type of movie and I probably wouldn’t see it again unless someone asked me specifically if I wanted to watch it.

Top Tuesdays #8: Top Ten Book to Movie Adaptations I Can’t Wait to See

f1f67-toptentuesday

Hi everyone,

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is titled “Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch”. Since I never end up with ten and they gave us two options, I decided to do both!

Top Book to Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To:

Mockingjay Part II – Nov. 20, 2015

Seriously though. Isn’t everyone excited for this?

beasts-ew-1389-cover

Fantastic Beasts – Nov. 18, 2016

That’s so long to wait! But for another addition to Harry Potter, totally worth it.

Artemis Fowl – TBD

This movie’s still very early in the making, but I’m really excited! This is one of my favorite book series.

Alice Through the Looking Glass – May 27, 2016

I loved the adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, so I hope they do a good job with this one and don’t butcher it.

Doctor Strange (2016) Poster

Dr. Strange – Nov. 4, 2016

As most of you know already, Benedict Cumberbatch is my favorite actor. That plus a Marvel movie makes this movie the most anticipated one.

Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens – Dec. 18, 2015

I’m really excited for this! I just think there are so many ways they could have screwed this up. I hope they didn’t….

Top Book to Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch:

Insurgent

I watched Divergent but haven’t read the books…

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Emma Watson, basically.

The Maze Runner

I heard that this movie wasn’t a very good adaptation though…

Lord of the Rings

Yeah…. Still haven’t seen this.

Honorable mention: The BFG

I loved this book! I didn’t even know they were making it into a movie until very recently. That’s so exciting!

That’s it! Until next time!

Top Tuesdays #7: My Top Classic Disney Movies

f1f67-toptentuesday

Hi everyone,

It’s Tuesday! And you know what that means… Time for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke ad the Bookish. I wasn’t really a fan of their topic for this week, so I decided to go off on my own and list my favorite classic Disney movies. Who doesn’t love Disney, right?

The Aristocats

This was my favorite childhood movie and, even after I’ve watched so many Disney movies, it’s still at the top.

The Little Mermaid

This movie is such a classic. The particular reason it’s one of my favorites is because I’m a swimmer and I love the ocean.

The Great Mouse Detective

This is such an underrated movie. By now, you all must know about my obsession with all things Sherlock Holmes. This is such a cute and well-done adaptation of the classic characters and stories.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl

I pretty much love any movie that has a main character who’s completely insane (in a good way). Oh, and I love Keira Knightley. I wasn’t a fan of the other movies, though.

The Rescuers Down Under

This movie is also severely underrated. I watched it over and over as a kid. So much better than the first one. I think the reason I like it so much is because I have this weird obsession with Australia and it’s like my #1 place that I need to visit in my lifetime.

That’s it! Until next time!
